Sam talks with K. Ishibashi, acclaimed musician known as “Kishi Bashi” and director of the upcoming film, “Omoiyari: A Song Film by Kishi Bashi.” The Japanese word “omoiyari” can be interpreted as empathy, compassion, and altruism. In the spirit of omoiyari, K created music at locations connected to the Japanese-American WWII Incarceration, providing a foundation to deliver a powerful message about social inequality and the complexities of humanity. K also shares the inspiration behind the new “song film” genre and how the Japanese phrase “ichi-go-ichi-e” has shaped his personal and professional ethos.
